Data Theft Could Affect 400,000

Choice Point, Incorporated is sending out more letters concerning possible identity theft. The company keeps personal information on virtually every American consumer. We previously reported how hackers stole that information on some 140,000 people from the company. Now authorities say the number of victims could be as high as 400,000.

The company already started mailing out letters. If you get one, follow the instructions. If you don't get one, Choice Point says you have no reason to worry.
